Thank you to our Partners!

Your opportunity to adopt high-quality trees at no cost has been made possible by our partners, whose kind support has offset the price of your tree!

Terms and Conditions

Reserved trees must be picked up between 9:00 a.m. and Noon during your selected timeslot. Trees not picked up by the Noon deadline will be forfeited and redistributed. Tree species are subject to change: If your selected tree is not delivered from the supplier, it may be substituted for another species.

By adopting a tree, you agree to plant it at your Linn County residence within one week of pickup. You must check with your local municipality if you are planning on planting in your sidewalk right-of-way. You also agree to provide the tree with continued care to the best of your ability.
